Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains, the timeless and idyllic setting of Yellow Breeches Creek has attracted visitors and outdoorsmen for generations, including the relatives of American Folk Legend, Davy Crockett. In 1786, the Crockett family chose this serene corner of Boiling Springs, PA to build a family home and barn that is still in use today.
Allenberry has a long history of delighting guests with live entertainment and warm hospitality. The 1929 owners of Allenberry Farm remodeled the original barn for summer entertaining. When the estate was sold to the Heinze family in 1944, Charles A.B Heinze knew the place was too special to be kept from the public and the Allenberry Resort was born. In 1949, The Allenberry Playhouse opened its doors and the resort became a center of relaxation, hospitality and entertainment. Locals, as well as guests from New York, Washington, DC and Philadelphia, came to take in dinner and a show in the quaint, pastoral setting. Famous faces at Allenberry include a young John Travolta who joined the summer stock program in 1971 and Shirley Jones who played a special one-week engagement in 1994 to sold-out crowds.
Today, the tradition of good times and relaxation continues. Allenberry Resort has been masterfully renovated, maintaining its history and charm, while offering updated accommodations and luxurious amenities. The 57-acre resort is connected by foot, bike, and cart paths allowing visitors to leave their cars and their busy world behind.
